Yes, it will. I just recently surfaced my old 2600-D and tried it out with my D40 and it works perfectly. I believe you need to have the built-in flash setting set to manual, but once you've done that you'll be good to go. After you've got the flash on the camera and powered up you may want to adjust some settings on the flash and in the camera, depending on what you're shooting, of course. I personally use the flash white balance setting set to -1. You may also want the adjust the flash compensation. I find that the best way to find the perfect settings is to just experiment and try out different things. Anyway, I hope that helped! Good luck.

Will the Nikon Speedlight SB-24 work with the Nikon D40?

The newest Nikon D3000 is the best. Not only is it newest and has all these new features, but it has more megapixels and would be the same price as the other two. The Nikon D40 is great and all, but it only has 6 megapixels, and is not good in low lighting which gets REALLY annoying.
